Swans, Snakes, Turtles, Oh My!
We had a picnic on Lake Louisa. There was a family there fishing. The kids were toddlers and their little tackle boxes were so cute. I remember fishing as a child their age, myself. My sister use to take me to the Spicket River. We never caught anything because we never used bait. She took a stick, tied a string to it. On the end of the string, she tied a large safety pin. I don't know why I never questioned her about it. Kids nowadays are a lot smarter than I was, that's for sure.
I looked again. It was awfully thick--the size of an arm. The colors were tan, brown, and back. What kind of water snake is that? I noticed how long it was, and then I notice that it branched off.
It was a branch--more of a small log. And all around it were small turtles sunning themselves. I think I frightened some of the turtles, and their jumping off caused the movement that caught my eye. Whew!
Let's pray for more days like this. Amen.
